1. Parachute canopy patching limitations. The following is a list of patching limitations for the MC-6:
The limitations prescribed for the parachute canopy patching will

any deviations. Failure to do so may result in death or serious
injury to personnel.
a. A patch will not be applied to a damaged area that has been previously patched.
b. Each canopy section, gore, has specified repair limitations. Determination should be made as to
the most economical method to be used, i.e., the number of allowable patches versus a section
replacement. A patch applied to a parachute canopy may extend from radial seam to radial seam.
